What I’m Watching: Two Weeks to Live (Penultimate Episode)

Two Weeks to Live: Season 1, Episode 5 (B+)

It’s sad to watch this episode knowing that there’s only one more left, especially since I feel like there’s plenty of potential for it to continue. Tina taking the phone from Jay and talking directly and honestly to Brooks to set up a meet for the exchange of the money made it seem like things were going to work out perfectly, but of course that was never fated to happen. I enjoyed hearing Kim and Tina bicker about walkie-talkie protocol when Tina was on the roof of the car within earshot of her, insistent on cutting her off even though she could literally hear everything she was saying. They did manage to get out of there and save Kim from what her mother thought would be certain death, not that they’re safe given the very unfortunate and somewhat predictable decision by Beth to drive out and track Jay after he asked her to marry him when she called to yell at him. The moment I really liked in this episode was Kim indicating that she wanted Nicky to kiss her even if they’d typically take a much longer time to get towards that step. Thompson annoying Brooks to no end by unloading and loading her gun over and over was also entertaining, and I appreciate that there’s humor to be found in the interactions of all the different characters. I’m not sure what to expect from the finale, but I hope that it’s going to be as satisfying as possible given that it’s coming far too soon.
